    2015 SuperTruck Series by Caterpillar [S1]

    image.jpg

    What is this?
    Basically a variant of the ever-popular fantasy series by @nascarfan1400, @Jahgee1124, @rallymorten, and @Earth. As the lowest tier of the top three, this series aims to integrate the user into the experience in the easiest way possible; by virtue of customizable AI stats!

    How does that work?
    I'll iron out the details at a later date. Basically before every race you will change a couple of AI stats to make your driver as competitive as possible. If last race your AI was too aggressive, why not done him/her down for the next?

    All the while, you have the opportunity to upgrade certain stats on your driver (min. and max. limits), pit crew (consistency, etc.), and car with the $$$ earned from the races. $$$ earned and adjustable AI details will be revealed in the upcoming days.

    Schedule & Races
    The aim is primarily short tracks with a lot of door to door actions. Races will vary in terms of length for a lot of reasons, but they will generally span in the 100-250 mile mark to make for short races that are exciting from beginning to end. Commentary will be handled by an assortment of individuals if I can contract them to do certain races. Most of them will be handled by me, with full length races and authentic NASCAR feeling.

    Check the following posts for the schedule.


    Points
    Will be based off of the actual, real life Camping World Truck series races, although you will earn bonus points for achieving the pole, and achieving the fastest in-race lap, for a maximum of 50 points per race.

    There will also be a team and manufacturer's championship, although with a slight twist. The points earned for that particular team/make will be determined by the highest and lowest finishing driver in said team/make.

    E.g. This means if there are 40 Fords and 2 Chevy's in a race, and one Chevy achieves the pole, led a lap, most laps led, fastest race lap, and wins, Chevy and the team the driver's in will earn 50 points. If the second Chevy finishes dead last, it will earn a single point towards the manufacturer and team. This eliminates the problems of having one team or manufacturer dominate too much.
    Points Breakdown
    +1-43 possible points based on position (1st: 43 pts., 43rd: 1 pts.)
    +2 points for achieving pole position (except for season opener)
    +1 point for leading a lap in a race
    +1 point for achieving the fastest in-race lap
    +3 points for leading the most laps


    Manufacturers
    As a much laxer racing series, there are much more options than any other racing series has to offer. You may choose from any of the following trucks.

    Click on your manufacturer for the appropriate template.


    Teams are a go. No limit on team members, so please go ahead and pull a 2007 Roush Racing.
    Please note that you are not bound to whatever manufacturer/number you sign-up for. You may, at any time during the season, pull a 2012 Kurt Busch and switch teams and numbers or pull a 2015 David Ragan and switch teams, manufacturers, and numbers. You won't lose any driver points, but you will cost your then-current team and manufacturer any future points you'd earn.

    Alrighty, time to make three out of three Fantasy Series that I am a part of, decided to sign up for this one as well.

    Per usual tradition, I will need help with making my livery as well, so if you enjoy creating liveries, be my guest. I promise not to be too over the top this time. ;)

    I'm in. Form submitted. Will be painting the hell out of this template and I'll be available to paint anyone's Truck if needed. For now, I'll get my primaries done but I'll start doing alternates once the complete schedule is out.

    Keep em coming guys. Need all the users I can get :lol:
    I'll add a poll to see who's in favor of that. Would it be like @rallymorten's style of F. LastName?

    Also, to clarify my number response, I've made up my mind and going for #34.

    Definitely going to sign up. Just one problem: I don't know which manufacturer to pick.

    Good point. We may need to substitute Bman and Doodle or we can run a two man team if we need to.

    EDIT: I'm not going to run Pepsi for this one though. I'm going to have Mortal Kombat as my sponsor.

    I can't decide on a sponsor. Right now I'm stuck between Pizza Hut and Panda Express. :lol:

    A tempting offer, but do I get to keep my sponsors? I already sent RACECAR a PM about the livery, so there's that to consider...

    You're fine, only thing I can really think of that we keep consistent is that we use the font Aardvark Bold italicised for our numbers http://www.simracingdesign.com/resources/aardvark-bold-font.82/
